Subscription for the Endowment of a Professorship in Davidson College, 1839 - 1850

 folder
Identifier: RG01-03-02

Scope and Contents

From the Series: This collection contains records from the position of treasurer for the Board of Trustees. Four of these folders contain legal documents, promissory notes, and receipts related to endowed professorships created during the time period. The Maxwell Chambers Estate folder contains documents detailing an effort by the First Presbyterian Church of Salisbury to expand the sanctuary without disturbing the burial site of Maxwell Chambers.. The Subscription book is a ledger containing pledges made to the college. There are legal documents related to various real estate transactions (Deeds 1885-88), but most of the documents concern themselves with the day-to-day operation of the college -- for example, there are receipts for classroom furniture and supplies. Of particular interest might be the folder marked "Ledgers, 1891-1907," which provides an interesting look at the operation of the college during those years.
